FTC Disclosure: I received an advance copy of this book from Librarything’s Early Review Program in exchange for an honest review.
“They’re like two peas in a pod,” adults whisper about the girls. But Garmann knows that they aren’t. Then one day Johanna takes Garmann into the woods to show him a surprise, and the two find a secret world full of imagination and discovery.”
Based on the summary provided by Librarything, I thought this would be a good addition for my elementary school library. It sounded like an interesting story. Unfortunately, it didn’t live up to it’s potential.
What I liked about the book: Unfortunately, I didn’t like anything about this book.
What I didn’t like about the book: The storyline was too disjointed. It really didn’t make any sense. What I really didn’t like were the illustrations. I found them to be rather creepy and well, downright scary. I also found the suggested romance between the two children to be out of place in this story. I have not read the other books by this author and I most likely won’t bother reading them. I do not believe this would be a good selection for our library.
